    “Locals are trying to get post code changed as it will lead arrivals astray using sat navs. It HAS to be approached from the centre of Youlgreave. Spacious property well presented and clean. Very well equipped kitchen but no spare cupboard space for food. Easy to get round that though with boxes and bags. Lovely paved patio and furniture with great views. No photos of that which nearly made me not book. Outside space important in summer. Only negative of the whole week was the buzzing of next doors hot tub. Comfy bedding and we parked 5 cars easily. Three decent pubs in Youlgreave which is about a 15 minute walk uphill. We ate in The Bulls Head- to varied reviews. Good beers in both Bulls Head and George. The other pub seemed to have fewer opening hours? There’s a small Spar shop, a cake shop and further - near the Bulls Head - a gem of a bakery called Peak Feast which has outside seating. It serves coffee, cakes and has a hot snack menu. Highly recommend the Homity Pie. We walked to Druids Inn in Birchover and to the Lathkil Hotel in Over Haddon. Both well worth a visit for food, drink and views. Both high up so you’ll earn the calories! The local walking routes from the doorstep are superb, best we’ve done, varied terrain. We would love to rebook. Helpful owner near by.”
